Dell 910 - Awesome mini computer

So I've spent the last 2 days in the hospital with my oldest son.  Seems he has viral meningitis.  Thankfully he will be just fine and we hope to leave tomorrow. This of course was really really bad timing because I'm supposed to be in Denver setting up the computer room for our new office.  I'm blessed that my network administrator still was able to make the trip and he's been doing a great job getting it all up and running.  I've been able to jump on the wireless connection here at the hospital and VPN in to help out.  This is the first time I've used our Dell 910 mini laptop and it's been working great.  What a lifesaver. 

Now I didn't over load the box at all because I've followed the kiss principle setting up the box.  It's XP Home Edition SP3 with watered down Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Skype.  Most of the time I'm remoted into my desktop at work over our SonicWall VPN4000...another awesome device.  The keyboard is my biggest complaint because it's so cramped but hey...it works.  I think I'll trade my Thinkpad in for one of these.
